under president george w. bush warns the laws could damage the gop. a full breakdown on that next from washington. >>> plus as the crisis continues in egypt word that two top islamist groups are trying to develop a truce with the egyptian military. arthel: a new democratic group launching a nationwide effort to make it easier for anyone who wants to vote to cast a ballot. their goal is to crack down on voter i.d. laws in several states. they claim discrimination against minorities. meantime, many conservatives say voter i.d. laws are necessary to stop voter fraud. chief congressional correspondent is live in washington. tell us more about this tug of war that is going on over voting. >> good morning. democratic group has launched what it's calling a 50 state initiative to promote reforms making it easier to vote. they're expected to push legislation similar to a law in colorado that requires all elections to be conducted by mail. attorney general eric holder has his sights set on the texas voter i.d. law. holder said over the weekend, the struggle must and will go on in the cause for o
by liberals during the bush years, he has got to. george bush got resolution 1441 from the united nations that could at least make the plausible case, meant, invading iraq was legal under international law. if he doesn't get approval from the u.n. security council then barack obama will be violating international law. it will be an illegal act of war. and, that doesn't mean i'm against it necessarily or that i think president obama should care one wit about approval from the u.n. i don't think the united states should care about the u.n. at all. i think that the idea that somehow we give a veto to china and russia about the morality or efficacy or legitimacy of our foreign policy is bizarre but that is a system that liberals have been championing for a very, very long time including barack obama and the double-standards here are, you know, are just so daunting for the president, given what he had said about, you know, foreign policy when he was a candidate. that he is now going back on all of it and he is in a real pickle. alisyn: well, that is exactly right. so why would the president ac
of george bush for doing what we did in iraq. now, that's inconsistentents now. it's really baffling to see the people on the left just rallying behind president obama, yeah, go ahead. fire the missiles! we're with you. but the people who were so antiwar and anti-conflict in the past, now they're ready to go without even knowing where we're going. >> gretchen: so many unanswered questions still today. but one of the big questions this morning is what kind of chemical weapons does syria actually have? what evidence does the united states have? heather nauert is here to break it down. >> we are learning interesting information this morning. the syrian deputy foreign minister telling reporters that sarin gas was used in several parts of the country, but he claims the rebels were the ones responsible for that attack. this assertion is not banged by the us -- backed by the united states which believes the syrian government unleashed the attack and is the party responsible. but what is interesting about this statement, gretchen, is that it is the first time we're hearing from a syrian government
was a u.s. senator. flashback to 2007. >> george bush and dick cheney must hear loud and clear from the american people and the congress, you do not have our support and you do not have our authorization to launch another war. >> i want to make it clear. i want to make it clear to the president. if he takes this nation to war in iran, without congressional approval, i will make it my business to impeach him. >> obama didn't know when he was criticizing bush. he didn't know how the world worked. he didn't know there were a bunch of bad guys. demanding that bush go through congress. demanding that bush go through the united nations. demanding that there be a coast guard. >> the war drums continue to beat louder and louder in the middle east. >> u.s. navy warships are standing by. they are waiting order from the president. >> the syrians have said that if struck, they will counter strike and downer attack on tel aviv. a city which they slay burn. >> it is pretty obvious the syrian army used chemical weapon. the president called that a red line so he feels we have to retaliate. >> what
is an assistant to george bush. welcome to you both. >> the town doesn't care in atheist and agnostics showed up to read. if they are going to let anybody do it why not? >> if you believe in separation of church and state there is no room for prayer of any kind. i don't care to jesus or allah or wicca n god. there should not be prayer in a public space because those of us who are believers should practice our beliefs in private and those who are not believers shouldn't be subject to beliefs of other people. if people are free to practice of religion, there should not be prayer in a public sprays. >> is that a separation of church in the constitution? >> yes, it doesn't mean there is not an existence of religion. our country is founded on judio- christian and in god we trust is engraved on our money. you don't have to accept it but you have to be tolerant. and i applaud the bum pull administration for coming down on tollerance and acceptance and the town in new york said it doesn't have to be just christian prayer and invite other nondenomination and atheist to say what they want. but remember, p
for diplomacy and pressure is running out when we haven't even tried direct diplomacy. george bush and dick cheney must hear loud and clear from the american people and the congress, you do not have our support and you do not have our authorization to launch another war. martha: that was back in 2011. -- that was back in 2007 and now we are on the cusp of other action going into syria. a younger looking barack obama then senator now president. he always had at the core of everything he talked about, getting out of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. in the state of the union he talked about putting the decade of wars behind us. so what's your reaction to where we are today with syria? >> great disappointment. i supported him as an anti-war candidate. we had a surge in afghanistan. we went into libya. against the very thing he talked about in 2007. he has to inform congress within 48 hours of any kind of military action then he has 60 days after which he would need congressional authorization to continue a war. that started in 1973 and that was violated by bill clinton and ronald reagan. presi
way. >> eric: brad blakeman is former assistant to george w. bush, and former chief of staff. welcome to you both. what will republicans do? >> republicans should play chess and not russia roulette. the strategy is to distort, divide, and distract us, the 3d strategy. we shouldn't fall into that trap. the fox news poll suggests that the american people don't like obamacare overwhelmingly, and they believe that it' it's in or best interest to repeal or replace it, so the job for republicans is to dismantle as much as we can. the president has done great job of it already. he's now eliminated the business obligation for obamacare to kick in, and the individual contribution. so the president is doing a nice job. unions are lining up against it. let's not shoot ourselves in the foot. let's have in the spring and summer of next year as we gear up to 2014 a plan in place where we solve obama care, but we also tackle the economy, and not fall for the democrats wanting us to shut down the government. we should keep our eye on the prize, and that's 2014. >> eric: chris, do you think that obama
for george w. bush. well to you both, ladies. >> thank you. >> the president said himself he was outraged by this potential conduct targeting conservative groups and other political groups. he said he would not tolerate it if the investigation reads lehr what about the personal emails? >> what's ironic is that they want to invade her personal email in order to show that the tea party groups' privacy was invaded. i think at a certain point you have to say we have done everything we can do. we have looked at all the professional emails. we vice president found what we are looking for. we haven't found anything truly linking lerner to some type of scandal. we have got to let it go. at what point is darrell issa going to stop this fishing expedition. just because is he not finding what he wants, doesn't mean he gets to keep going. i think what we have all learned in this scandal is yes. the irs probably overstepped its bounds in looking into these groups. frankly they looked into just as many liberal groups. >> that's not true. >> that's not true. >> including one i worked for. >> shannon: le
to end the cowboy foreign policy of george w. bush, who did go to the u.n. and did go to congress before going to war in iraq. >> gretchen: so congress is on recess until september 9. is that any excuse to not inform them about doing an act of war? if you look at sort of the definition of what the president needs to do, there is some wiggle room in that. but none the less, the president told the "boston globe" in 2007 this quote: the president does not have power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. the american people sitting around their coffee tables this morning and going to work, they're probably wondering, is syria an imminent threat to the united states of america? you can argue that both ways. you can argue it both ways with regard to america's position as a military force in the world, and for standing up for human rights. when people are killed by their own leader with sarin gas and other chemical weapons. >> steve: where do you draw the line? >> gretchen: yo
